Notes on the group meetings: These are not held every week, but on average every other week. Some are on consecutive weeks to accomodate travel schedules. These are informal and normally take place in the Kellogg Room. The intent is to provide guidance to the student researchers, brainstorm about research problems, and give the researchers practice in communicating their work. Those presenting should prepare a 20-25 minute talk with minimal background and introductory information (most in this group will be aware of this), a little on non-standard methods. The main focus should be on results, interpretations and plans for new experiments over the coming weeks. All should be prepared to offer advice and criticisms. All group researchers (those listed above) should attend and participate in all meetings. Others interested in water treatment and water quality are invited to attend and participate in discussions. For past schedules see archive page.
